My daughter is now a 1st grader and I as a parent am very impressed with Collier. The teachers my daughter has had have been great! they really push the students to their potential and bring out the best in them. I'm impressed with the school work that they have for homework. The teachers communicate with the parents. I would just like to say keep up the great job teachers! and Thank You. Yours Truly, Proud Parent LN
